But I digress. Time to taste some whisky.
Glenfarclas 15 Year, 46% ABV
Single malt Scotch whisky (Speyside)
Price range, 750 mL: $90-100
Nose: Red Gushers fruit candy. Are those things still around? That is all I could think at first. It's just a really bright candied fruitiness - like barely-ripe raspberries, with a whiff of char or smoke.
Palate: A mix of plums and raspberries.
Finish: Wood and spice linger nicely.
Rating (of 100): 87. Not blowing my mind but also not a shabby dram. At least no diamonds were harmed in the making of this whisky.
